Couple pics from today: 

 

Wasn't quite cold enough in NYC, but I wore the Luigi Bianchi Camel coat anyway:

Thanks for the feedback guys! We spent about two hours working on the sample yesterday, so I can give you some more info:

 

1) The leg opening is going to be about 7.5" at the bottom for a size 32. That diameter is more or less maintained until about a 30" inseam. We're still moving from a sample to a hard pattern, so things might change a bit, but this is the plan. It's what we offer on the Driggs, and I have yet to see this leg opening be physically too small for someone - although it might be smaller than they want style-wise. I think that the strong taper gives this pant a lot of its appeal. Rather than just a slim pleated pant, it has some swagger and will stand out.

 

2) Thanks to everyone for the encouraging words on the big-ass waistband, we're going to keep that!

 

3) The production model will not have either belt loops or side tabs. But you'll be surprised on how much less this matters on a high-waisted design. If it fits you around the waist pretty well, then it's going to stay up and stay there. Putting side tabs on will make the design really busy, and the waistband is so large that a normal belt is going to look weird with it. It would only cover like half of the waistband. The extra button that you see after the waistband extension is actually just decorative. You'd only be able to use it if you bought the pants 2 sizes too large.

 

4) This is a really sartorial piece. I think that the fit is going to be excellent for nearly every Rudy & Walt customer that's out there. But many of the fit photos that you see out there are done on fairly expensive MTM pieces. And they fit as such. So if you want this thing to work perfectly, I think that it's good to consider tailoring it on your end. The waist can be made to fit exactly. The legs can be let in or out to change the taper and fit. We'll have all of the usual seam allowances throughout.

 

5) We're going to shoot for an end-November delivery on this. I'll probably run some basic fabrics in it: Grey & Navy Hopsack, Oxford Grey Flannel, some manner of tweed. Around 100 units in total, about 25 units of each. I'll keep everyone posted as it develops.

 

Might I suggest some kind of tan as well, for those of us looking to add the single-pleat trouser to our California Tuxedo ensemble...

 

maybe something like sand fresco?

What's the weight going to be like on the moleskin field jacket? It might actually be a decent Florida winter depending on the weight. I see so much awesome outerwear but most of the time it doesn't make any sense to buy it because it never gets cold enough to wear it.

A bit late to the party. Not visable epaulet white loopwheel t-shirt, natural cxl belt and jays hoodie.

Couldn't help but pick up the Schott overcoat. Will be very versatile I think.

I made a mistake not picking up one of those Schott Pea Coats on pickle day. Really good value.

Agreed, I bought the peacoat a few weeks back and it's a staple for sure.
